My Slim + XFCE configuration causes following issue:
First login is fast, everything is fine, shutdown/reboot buttons are available.
On re-log it takes about one minute (timeout?) until the desktop is shown.
slim: waiting for X server to begin accepting...
I am running FreeBSD as a guest OS in VirtualBox on a Windows 10 host. I installed the XFCE desktop environment, but unfortunately I cannot put it on full screen mode, its highest resolution that I can set is 1024x768. So based on this article I installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions on the...
Hey guys. I hope everyone is staying safe with COVID-19. Here's hoping it will go to /dev/null soon... So, anyway, as the title of this post says, I'm having trouble getting X to start (XFCE4 works fine when it manages to load properly with Xorg). I know things are working fine because the text...
This week was my 3rd try of using FreeBSD (as desktop system). Today I am nearly at the point where I give up. I already tested FreeBSD for a longer time some months ago (and another time about 1-2 years ago).
Now I use FreeBSD 12.1 (-RELEASE).
The 2 times when I used FreeBSD I had the exact...

I am new to FreeBSD.
I am having issues with the hibernation settings on XFCE 4.14 - basically when my pc "goes to sleep", it doesn't wake up again. The only solution, once it goes into hibernation, is to press the power button and turn off the machine. When I used Xfce 4.12 in September...
Hi. I'm using the xfce desktop on FreeBSD-RELEASE-12. Is there any tool available to take screenshots ?
For example, I press Ctrl+Print Scrn and the snapshot of my screen is taken. Or, I drag a rectangle to take a snapshot of my screen.
Greetings, I have been recently wanting to get into FreeBSD

I was trying to install a GUI (KDE) but in the end it said DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the x server kde. I did run some commands but none of them help with the issue so I gave up on KDE and tried to install XFCE, I did pkg install xorg slim xfce, and enabled the slim...
Hello, I'm new to freebsd and the way it works(I mean, completely new; I don't even really understand what's going on in the handbook).
I'm mentioning this, because I've searched the threads to find the solution to my problem and I didn't get half the things that were said,
so please be...
I was trying to install the latest Current on a machine w/ a Nvidia K600 (it does have onboard Intel graphics as well). Unfortunately I am unable to startx as it either complains about "No screens found" or another error message related to framebuffer mode.
As layed out in the...
I installed FreeBSD for the first time yesterday and installed Xorg and Xfce4 with Slim to manage logging in. I can boot into slim and login to the desktop and everything seems to work. But the settings menu doesn't have the monitor in the list of displays, and the mouse settings show "sysmouse"...
Hello.<br />I am aware this has been asked numerous times before, but the two methods that I tried failed. I had to clean-up after both methods.
I have an Alienware 13 R-2 laptop, with 16GB RAM, and "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M". I have been using the OS for a while now (without the drivers), with...
I am using 11.1 on my two laptops. One has a wireless card which currently not supported, other's wireless card is out of order. I have 8.1 on my one laptop, and desktop none of which have wireless connectivity. I dont have a technical use of FreeBSD on these four machines. I use them as...
I followed some videos and the manual at section 5.7 Desktop Environments, nothing works.
I tried to create xsession or xinitrc following the instruction, not working either.
Where on root should either file sit?
And xorg always quits and never shows. Sorry guys, but I have to go...

Thanks a million
I recently installed XFCE with Slim, but when I try to log in as any user, it just refreshes. Also, I can only log in as super user. When I try to log in VIA a normal user it says failed to execute login command
